PERSON PLACE THING: ALICIA GLEN
Radio Show Recording & Live Music Performance

Our most recent public programs festival, Mandate, was supported by the NEA and looked at how cities are shaped by electoral politics at every level, asking how citizens can get involved in the process in ways large and small. ities.

As deputy mayor for housing and economic development, native New Yorker Alicia Glen’s mandate includes more than 40 agencies and authorities. From empowering women entrepreneurs and preserving public housing to introducing a citywide ferry service, Glen has brought her frank and forthright approach to solving urban problems.

Participants joined us for a conversation between Glen and former “Ethicist” columnist for The New York Times  Randy Cohen in a live recording of the radio show Person Place Thing. Glen told us about a person, a place, and a thing that have shaped her understanding of cities, and how that understanding has in turn shaped her work. The evening also featured performances by banjoist Hubby Jenkins.
